This edition is in honor of Jake Jakabosky who passed away suddenly earlier this month. Jake was a widely respected but unassuming member of the community; always willing to volunteer for community activities with an earnest, quiet demenor and an infectious smile. High Prairie will certainly miss his contribution to Fire District 14 as a firefighter, first responder and the principal author of Fire Lines. As you read this edition you will notice that many people have been touched by this loss. Our hearts go out especially to Gwen (the real editor of the High Prairian) as she makes her way though a very tough time.
